Coding notes

Academic classification levels reflect categories referred to in salary determinations made by the Academic Salaries Tribunal and the Australian Conciliation and Arbitration Commission. Where a local designation or a designation of a body such as the National Health and Medical Research Council is used, it is to be translated to an appropriate category. The primary basis of the translation is to be the member of staff's salary.

The "salary level" shown for Vice‑Chancellor, Deputy Vice‑Chancellor, Principal and Deputy Principal relates to the salary levels specified in determinations of the Academic Salaries Tribunal and the Australian Conciliation and Arbitration Commission. Salary Level 1 indicates the lowest salary level.
